as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class families in america benefit more from any limit of deductions. >> well, a limit of deductions actually would hurt the wealthy to the extent that we're talking about a deduction that the wealthy take in very, very large amounts. a limit on those deductions makes some sense in terms of a progressive tax system. >> what do you think the plan for the president will be tonight? terms of tax reform, mr. reich? >> the president has said that he wants the so-called buffett rule that is a minimum tax particularly in regard t
